CentOS 6.9 32 bits on ML30 Gen9

Hi,

Is there a way to turn on 32 bits support for OS on ML30 Gen9?

I need to install CentOS 6.9 32 bits due Cobol requirement.

I'll appreciate any ideas.

Best,

Fernando Pimenta

I think the best way is using virtual machine with Centos 32bit ontop of KVM 64bit host:

Hi sdmitriev1,

Thanks for your help!

But the system needs to run on physical level (I've tested the same system running as guest, obtaining bad performance in that specific software).

I really need to run 32 bits native.

No chance.
